Gloucester's Dave Lewis makes his first England Under 20 start against Scotland at the IRB Toshiba Junior World Championship in Tokyo tomorrow (Tuesday) alongside three club team mates including Henry Trinder (pictured).
The scrum half won his first cap off the bench when coach Mark Mapletoft's side opened the tournament with a 43-0 victory over hosts Japan last Thursday.
Now he takes over from Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) as England freshen up their side with nine changes of personnel.
Into the backline come Lewis and his Gloucester teammates Henry Trinder and Charlie Sharples, with Will Hurrell (Leicester Tigers) on the wing and Rob Miller (Newcastle Falcons) at fly half.
Up front there are first starts for props Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs) and Shaun Knight (Gloucester), lock Graham Kitchener (Worcester Warriors) and blindside flanker Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints).
Centre Luke Eves continues as captain while Leeds Carnegie flanker Calum Clark sits out a second game. Prop Joe Marler (Harlequins) starts a two-match suspension following his sending off in the opening match.
England beat Scotland 20-6 at the end of this year's RBS U20 Six Nations but the side is radically different this time round.
Only five of the team that started against the Scots that night at Worcester reappear at the Prince Chichibu Stadium: fly half Miller, try-scorer Trinder, captain Eves, prop Moon and No.8 Chris York.

Brighton is the venue of choice for England this week as the squad have reported for a training camp to prepare for the upcoming international against Wales. GRTV caught up with Gloucester's Matt Kvesic after the first day's training.
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan reflected on the loss to Northampton Saints, and spoke about what he and the team need to do for the new season when the team return after the summer break.
In only his second Aviva Premiership outing, Lloyd Evans scored his first senior try for Gloucester against Northampton Saints on Saturday and told GRTV afterwards that he enjoyed the experience despite finishing on the losing side.
Gloucester will round off their Aviva Premiership campaign on Saturday with a tough finale against Northampton Saints. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that he's pleased with the team's attitude over the past two games and is looking for more of the same.
Speaking to GRTV after the 12-11 Aviva Premiership victory at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, Matt Kvesic described it as a real team effort with several players having to play out of position due to illness and injury in the ranks.
Despite he and a number of his team mates playing out of position, Greig Laidlaw's four penalties were enough to help Gloucester to a 12-11 Aviva Premiership win at Sale on Friday evening. The skipper told GRTV after the game that everyone had played their part, especially the younger players.
Wednesday saw Gloucester Rugby drawn with Stade Rochelais, Benetton Treviso and Aviron Bayonnais in Pool 1 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Director of Rugby David Humphreys responded positively to the news.
